Data Center Description
The Goddard Space Flight Center Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES-DISC), Greenbelt, Maryland, is one of several Earth science data centers comprising the Earth Science Data and Information System (ESDIS). The ESDIS program is a segment of the Earth Observing System (EOS), NASA's contribution to the Global Change Research Program. The GES-DISC is an interactive scientific data management system composed of an integrated set of software tools for locating and accessing data from NASA and other correlative research missions in upper atmosphere, atmospheric dynamics, and global biosphere disciplines. The DISC provides comprehensive information about available data and offers flexible access to a number of valuable data sets from both satellite and conventional sources.
